Job 18:10 “The snare is laid for him in the ground, and a trap for him in the way.”
Psalms 142:3 “…In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.”
We run in danger of pitfalls daily, and a good understanding of what they are, and how they operate is what can bail us out. The devil will never come at the believer and announce himself as the devil. That’s why I’m always a bit skeptical of the drawings of the devil which paints him as a horrible monster with horns and tails. Hear this:
2Corinthians 11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.”
2Corinthians 11:14 “And no wonder! Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light.” (MSG)
Rather than waiting for a dark horned devil, be weary and watch out for the beautiful “white” robed angels around you. If the devil comes or appears to you in a dark form, you can easily recognize him and run away, so he wouldn’t. The devil has stayed long on this planet to know that.
He is experienced enough, not to give you something bitter without first sugar coating it. You must be weary of those beautiful things you want badly, inside might be bitter and deadly.
When the enemy comes against you, he conceals his intentions. He uses pitfalls and waits for you to sit on the disguised but beautiful throne before he strikes. It was a strategy he used on our first parents, Adam and Eve.
Genesis 3:1 “Now the snake was the most cunning animal that the LORD God had made. The snake asked the woman, “Did God really tell you not to eat fruit from any tree in the garden?””
He didn’t come out directly to attack what God has told Adam and Eve, he used the pitfall principle. He made them doubt God, and then admire the fruit and eventually led them to a mighty fall.
So, what are these pitfalls?
To be continued…
